I wish someone had told me...Part 2



  • When people offer support, take them up on it.

  • People will bring you food because they don’t know what else to do. Don’t feel bad throwing it away.

  • People will say stupid, hurtful things without even realizing it

  • People will tell you things that aren’t true about your grief

  • Death brings out the best and the worst in families, so be prepared.

  • There is no such thing as closure.

  • There is no timeline for grieving. You can’t rush it.  

  • You will grieve, in some form, forever.

  • There will always be regrets.  No matter how much time you had, you’ll always want more.

  • Guilt is a normal part of grief.
